The City of Barrie has initiated a Schedule ‘A+’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study to address the aging Big Bay Point Road Painswick Bridge structure.
Background: There are two Big Bay Point Road bridges over the GO rail line near Ashford Drive. The northern most bridge was built in 1975 and the southern one in 1996. The northern bridge is in need remedial works to extend its lifespan. Regular bridge maintenance inspections have determined the north bridge needs remedial work to continue to operate.
Study Level: Schedule A+ Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA)
Status: Notice of Study Commencement has been issued. The City has retained a consulting engineer McIntosh Perry to complete a detailed evaluation of the existing structure and to undertake the design of the remedial works, i.e. the conversion to integral abutments, and to prepare the tender documents.
Construction is currently planned for 2022 with tendering in later 2021.
The north bridge will be closed to traffic for the construction and the south bridge traffic will be reconfigured to be one lane in each direction.
The bridge remedial work is expected to take a full construction season, i.e. April to November 2022.
